So happy that we found this spot to have lunch. We were looking for something light and healthy. Lots of choices on the menu. All the salads looked delicious. We enjoyed the fall salad.

We had a great lunch at this popular casual eatery. Whether you are having breakfast or lunch, everything is tasty, fresh and well prepared. I had the salad nicoise with salmon, it was large, filling and delicious. Other members of our party had enchiladas, an omelette, the Asian plate (cold seseme noodles and spring rolls) and the Greek salad (best... More

Always go and eat breakfast, as this is one of my favorite Santa Fe Restaurants for that. Today we tried to eat differently so I had the Fish and Chips special and my wife had the Salmon taco’s which are also deep fried. Both were excellent! These guys know how to fry, both kinds of fish were very fresh and... More

Counter Culture has been a go-to place for a hearty brunch for us for years. Not usually on a first-time tourist's radar it should be. Its economical, fresh, well-prepared and generous portions will leave you patting your belly and smiling. Our favs: the ricotta-lemon pancakes w/ a side of bacon (I just want a bite and encourage someone else to... More

We've gone to Counter Culture many times for breakfast and always found it very satisfactory. We were looking for a relatively healthy, laid-back, inexpensive place to try for dinner the other night, and tried Counter Culture. We were very pleased. My wife had a middle eastern plate and glass of wine, while I had the grilled trout special and a... More

My favorite breakfast spot - everything here is good and some things are just flat out great. Yes, a cinnamon roll should be on your list to have. Love the spring rolls too. Always have nice special too.

Fresh, creative American fare in super casual industrial space. A little off the beaten path. Good find!

Let me start with the food...absolutely amazing. Smothered burrito is delightful! Reason for review is the front counter service. We are from out of town and weren't familiar with the way the place works. He took our order after ignoring us for 5 minutes...no one in line but us. Then just kind of went blank. A lot here is self... More

Take time to enjoy this little gem. Lots of fresh ingredients, packed with flavor and beautifully presented. Lots of good vegetarian options, not just a quesadilla or Mac 'n cheese. It's a great coffee spot so expect noise. Enjoy.
